“Nice place, but a little odd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

We stayed here based on reviews and it was pleasant enough. We had a double in the new building and it was a little odd as there was no staff there, so anytime you wanted to ask for anything or needed directions, we had to go up to the other building a block away.
The room was clean and bright and the fan was powerful. The shared bathrooms were clean enough, but there's only two shower/toilets and with two 6 bed dorms and 5 rooms, they get well used each day. The wifi is pretty fast in the common area and worked enough in our room at the end of the corridor. The guest house is in the no smoking area so the main common area is a smoking zone, which my partner and I disliked a lot.

This place is amazing! We stayed in a fan room with lots of Windows that we didn't even need the fan. The place has charm and the quirky little details makes it feel like home. The vibe is upbeat, the kind of place where you meet new people and make new friends. They have bikes available which makes exploring Melaka infinitely better. Will definitely come back!

Great location in China town, fabulous light airy room with sunny outlook. Not fancy but everything you need. Nice staff and friendly guests. Very clean for our first time Asia. I would definitely stay here again. Perfect for our 4 nights stay.

Great place. We just loved it from the minute we walked in.
Sam who runs it is amazing! So helpful and chilled.
Great chilled atmosphere for travelers and a good communal area to meet people.
Bikes are available, which is really the only way to see Melaka.
Stayed in a private fan room.
Sam even provided us with a padlock for our door.
Showers and bathroom outside. Washing machine available for a small charge and lots of space to hang your washing.

Close to the night market.
Really can't recommend this place enough!

I been staying here on and off since Oct 2013. The place is really value for money, clean and tidy. The caretaker (Sam) is always give an extra miles to make sure the guest feel like home. The room are so comfortable and the dorm space are big enough to put all your stuff.

We paid around $23 (AUD) for the new room, which had air con and hot water. The room was basic but clean, and the ensuite was small but functional. The location is great, right in the centre but not in the noise. The staff was nice enough and the wifi worked in the communal area.

I would give this place a 4 rating if it was not for the bed itself which I found uncomfortable. We also had a medium sized towel as a cover blanket/sheet, and it barely covered one person so between my husband and I we struggled.

Stayed at Jalan jalan besi for 4 nights. Very comfortable stay. We stayed in a private room with a private bathroom, for a very reasonable price. Owners very friendly and helpful, and they have excellent security by means of a front gate. Very clean room and bathroom. Really nice location in melacca, would stay again and also highly recommend to anyone staying in melacca.
